Quote We are ready for the biggest weekend in Dragon Gate USA's short history with the "Enter The Dragon" PPV premiering on Friday night and the live event on Sunday in Chicago at The Congress Theater. Here is the latest from DGUSA.tv:

-5th row is almost sold out for Sunday's Chicago event. You can still reserve tickets online in the DGUSA.tv Store or by calling 267-519-9744 until Friday at midnight. At that point, you will still be able to buy tickets at the door on Sunday. There will definitely be tickets on sale Sunday, but 5th row will probably be sold out by then so we urge you to act by Friday at midnight if you want them.

-If you are attending this Sunday's show or thinking of going we strongly suggest you go to the www.DGUSA.tv Feature Articles section and read the "What You Need To Know" article as it covers ticket availability, entry into the building, merch, autograph signings, fan conduct, security and other details.

-Jim Ross said in his blog yesterday at JRsBarBQ.com that "Jerry Lawler and I will make a rare, personal appearance (for me any way) this Sunday at the much anticipated Dragon Gate (USA) wrestling event in Chicago at the Congress Theater...I look forward to the experience...." This is only the 3rd time that the legendary broadcast duo of JR & "The King" have appeared together for an autograph signing. Go to www.Highspots.com or read the "What You Need To Know" article for details.

-Check out Gabe's emotional blog about Bryan Danielson at www.Myspace.com/rohgabe  including a locker room story and what it was like booking Bryan since 2002.

Here is the lineup for Sunday in Chicago:

-Dragon Gate USA's first PPV, "Enter The Dragon", will premiere this Friday, Sept. 4th, on iN DEMAND, TVN, DISH Network and in Canada on Viewer's Choice and Bell ExpressVU. We sent out some advance screeners to respected critics and journalists and here is what they had to say:

"...from start-to-finish, this is as good a wrestling PPV show as there has been." - Dave Meltzer in September 7th Wrestling Observer Newsletter. He gave the matches an unprecedented ****1/4, ****, ***3/4, ****1/4 and ****1/4.

"In all seriousness folks, everyone loves to clamor for something different and everyone loves to complain that "pro wrestling" doesn't exist the way they want it to...Dragon Gate USA is right there for you to watch and there is no way you can order this show and not be blown away, much less entertained." - Mike Johnson on Sept. 3rd at PWinsider.com

"Overall score (10.0): This is one of the best PPVs I've ever seen from a wrestling standpoint...I think in the future this is going to be a show people look back upon fondly as one of the better PPVs they've ever seen." - Sean Radican in Pro Wrestling Torch Newsletter #1105

"The Dragon Gate USA PPV, which debuts September 4th nationwide on cable and satellite, may legitimately be the best wrestling show top to bottom in history" - Bryan Alvarez in August 25th Figure Four Weekly

-Thank you for reading this press release.
 
* A few links above for people to familar themselves more with the product.
 
* A good lineup this sunday. Just a shame Brian Kendrick and Bryan Danielson are in seperate matches.
 
* That Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler are doing only their 3rd ever joint autograph signing session with them this weekend should tell you what you need to know.

I know Danielson is on the roster page, but has Danielson made it back to DG USA yet?

I lump this in with ROH into 'Room 101'.

After seeing the ridiculous no-selling in this, I just cant take it seriously.

Never watched it, dont intend to.

Ive never bought into the hype around it, never liked Joe and plus Ive seen it on 'Douchebag Dave' Meltzer's list of 5* matches, which I think is a crock of shit, TBH.

Really cannot stand DGUSA or ROH, I dont understand the appeal there.

Because your narrow minded, thing is even if you don't like Indie Wrestling, doesn't mean you should rule out every promotion. 
 
By the way I don't think its a case of them no selling moves, just that the matches are much longer and they pack in a lot more moves per match.
 
Anyway will be starting a thread on Dragon Gate's second trip to the UK soon.
Lifes what you make it.

I choose to out think people, who are too dumb and pick on the rich.

I like PWG though.

I'm not tarring every indy fed with the same brush here as I have gave them a good look, its just hard to be into promotions that take themselves way too seriously like ROH. Not to say they havent had good matches, but some of the basics there are just ridiculous, same for DGUSA.

DVD off the top rope only for the guy to spring back to his feet?

Come on man.
